Roberto Mancini sacked as Manchester City manager!

Roberto Mancini was sacked last night as Manchester City manager exactly one year after he won the first Premier League title for City.

A statement from the club reads: “This has been a difficult decision for the owner, Chairman and Board to make. Despite everyone’s best efforts, the Club has failed to achieve any of its stated targets this year, with the exception of qualification for next season’s Uefa Champions League. This, combined with an identified need to develop a holistic approach to all aspects of football at the Club, has meant that the decision has been taken to find a new manager for the 2013/14 season and beyond.”

Assistant Manager Brian Kidd will take charge for the remaining two games against Reading FC and Norwich and the summer U.S. Tour. It is rumoured that Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini is replacing Mancini for the new season. However, a confirmation is still outstanding.

Mancini joined City in December 2009 and replaced Mark Hughes winning the FA Cup in 2011 and the first Premier League title in 44 years for the club. Last June, Mancini signed a new 5 year deal with City. However, this season Manchester City was only able to secure second place in the Premier League, went out in the group stage of the Champions League and lost in the FA Cup final against Wigan Athletic.

Manchester City will travel to Reading on Tuesday night for there last away match before facing Norwich City at home on Saturday. City tickets available.
